Cash-strapped graduates sell their own faces

Enterprising human billboard fundraiser

Security for virtualized datacentres

A couple of cash-strapped graduates are well on their way to paying off £50k in university fees after offering their faces as advertising space.

Ross Harper and Ed Moyse (pictured below) kicked off their 366-day debt-busting face-painting drive back in October, and have so far raised a cool £31,632 from a mixed bag of clients including Ernst & Young, The Salvation Army and Hello Kitty Online.

If you'd got in at the off, a day's promotion would have cost you a quid, but the savvy pair of human billboards gradually ramped up the price as the project gained momentum.

If you want your logo splashed across Harper and Moyse's handsome visages, it'll now cost you £400 per day. Ask for a September spot and your wallet will be £1,000 lighter.

For those of you who are feeling flush, and fancy helping out two impoverished and starving products of the UK's educational system, there are more details here. ®
